Add the apple juice to the pan. You should use a wooden spoon for this, but mine has disappeared to be used in a mysterious project somewhere in this house, by people unknown, so you can also use a rubber spatula. Boil the juice for 3 minutes. During that time, scrape the bottom and sides of the pan, loosening the carmelized pieces.
Decorate your plate with some of the juice. add your bundt and some apples.
